Wahl to Make Donation to Movember Foundation
November 5, 2010,
STERLING, Ill.--Wahl Clipper Corp. has pledged to make a $10 donation to the Movember Foundation for each sale of its Special Edition Wahl Lithium Ion Grooming Kit.
Movember is an effort in which men are encouraged to grow facial hair to raise awareness for cancer research ("The Mo" is slang for "mustache," according to a statement from Wahl). Men are to start November clean-shaven, and grow their mustache for the entire month so that the mustache becomes "the ribbon of men's health," Wahl said. In this effort, Movember is partnering with the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the cancer-awareness organization founded by Lance Armstrong.
